"Under conceivable circumstances, a few persons, possibly even one person working alone, who possessed about 10 kilograms of plutonium oxide and a substantial amount of chemical high explosive could, within several weeks, design and build a crude fission bomb "Fission explosives can also be made with a few kilograms of high-enriched uranium, or with uranium 233 All these materials are found in the civilian nuclear power industry "Besides nuclear material and chemical explosives, the other materials necessary for making a crude fission bomb can be bought in hardware stores or from commercial suppliers of scientific equipment for students."
